It has been a while since I blogged so I thought that it was time I said hello
again. I have been wondering if you missed me?
Here are more quilts for your viewing pleasure.
This quilt was huge and also an experiment by one of my customers. It did turn out really
nice but when you are working on the bias, beware of stretching. Please take precautions to
minimize how much the fabric will stretch on you.
In order to minimize stretch, you can glue baste the block together; you can also pin like crazy
and keep measuring your block as you construct it. This helps to keep the finished block true
to whatever size it is supposed to be.
A simple quilting design was stitched into the top. I didn’t want to cover up all that gorgeous
fabric with thread so I stitched around the trees and did a freehand in all the other open areas.
Michele made this lovelty quilt with lots of sharks on it. I am really into the teal colors right now.
Funny how your color taste keeps changing.
An overall design was stitched onto the quilt top and it resembles waves.
Anyone remember the movie;”Jaws?” This quilt will definitely give you nightmares, just kidding.
It was fun to see how clever and creative Michele became in order to create this quilt for the
males in her family. I think that they will love it.
The backing even has more sharks on it. There were 3-5 sharks quilted onto the top as well.
The colors in this 9 Patch are so colorful. It has been a long, dull winter so quilts like this helped
to keep me cheerful. I call it color therapy.
Just pull out a quilt like this and all the winter blues disappear.
The backing shows off the Van Gogh Design quite nicely.
Darlene made this quilt for one of her grandkids. It looks so complicated but it consists of
squares arranged in a pleasing manner.
A simple quilting design was all that was required and it adds movement to the top.
The backing fabric is quite lovely too.
I hope that the spring flowers are beginning to poke their heads up finally.
Have a good week and see you next week.
